By now, most of us have heard about the upcoming Model 3, the car that Elon Musk says will be the first to go into production.
That’s a pretty big milestone for a car company, and one that Tesla’s been planning since the end of 2015.
And now we have a pretty good idea of what to expect in the car, thanks to an internal presentation that Tesla shared on Wednesday.
Model 3 is Tesla’s answer to the VW Golf, a car that has been on the market for a couple of decades.
It’s a sleek, sporty, sports car with a bunch of electric powertrains.
Musk says the Model 3 will be “the most capable car in the world” in the “next two to three years.”
And while it’s hard to say exactly how capable it will be at the moment, Musk says he’s confident that “the car will be capable of [driving] at highway speeds for the next 10 to 20 years.”
So how does the Model 4 compare?
We’ve been waiting for a long time for the Model IV to come to market, but we still don’t have a good idea how much Tesla plans to charge for it.
We have an idea of how much it will cost, but it’s unclear whether that figure includes the cost of the batteries, the battery pack itself, or even the battery packs themselves.
The Model 4 will be cheaper than the Model S and the Model X, and it will probably have a bigger battery than the one on the Model Y. But what about the actual weight of the car?
How much does the car weigh?
Well, that’s a little trickier.
Elon Musk’s Model 3 and Model 4 are both 7.9 inches wide and 8.1 inches tall, which makes the cars weigh more than a ton.
So how much weight does a Model 3 or Model 4 actually have?
Well that depends on the size of the battery.
Model 4 has a battery pack that’s only 7.8 inches wide by 9.6 inches tall.
So that’s actually not much weight at all.
Model S has a pack that measures 12.9 x 8.9 by 8.4 x 4.5 inches.
Model X has a larger battery pack of 17.4 inches wide x 17.5 x 7.2 inches tall (a 7.5-pound weight difference).
Model 3’s pack weighs 13.3 x 8 x 6.2 ounces.
But if you factor in the weight of a lithium-ion battery pack, Model 3 weighs in at a little over 17.7 pounds (15.7 kilograms).
And if you think that the weight difference between the Model I and Model III is too small, Model X is only 2.7 lbs (1.5 kilograms).
The Model X packs a whopping 27 kWh of lithium-air battery, which means that Model 3 could easily have enough juice to cover its entire range of needs (though Model X’s pack can only provide 3.5 kWh of juice).
If you’re looking for a little more room, Tesla says Model 4 is 7.3 inches wide, 8.7 inches tall and is about 6.4 pounds (2 kilograms).
Model X comes in at 6.9-inches wide, 7.7-inches tall and weighs about 6 pounds (3.1 kilograms).
All of this makes it difficult to judge the weight and the overall weight of an actual Model 4.
However, we can take Tesla’s word for it that Model 4 won’t be too heavy at all, and its pack is going to be much lighter than the 6.5 pounds (4 kilograms) of Model X. So if you’re considering a Model 4, we hope you’ll have enough room to do so.
